The Patrick Madrid Show: August 23, 2023 – Hour 3

Why are angles called saints? Is it okay to become sterilized if you have depression? Is it a sin that I unknowingly helped someone get an abortion?

  • Tiffany – My uncle, who is divorced and remarried, asked why a murderer can go to confession and receive communion but he can’t because he’s divorced. How do I respond to him?
  • Nancy – I also had the scar tissue issue with my pregnancy. I prayed to Saint Raphael and everything came out well with us.
  • Linda – My mother was told that she could never have another child because she would die. My mom had more children and didn’t die.
  • Mindy – I was dating a man and got pregnant. I scheduled an abortion. I was on the table and the doctor was about to start the abortion. I jumped off the table and told the doctor I couldn’t do it. Now he is 13-years-old.
